All wpa_supplicant service files have ExecStart=/usr/sbin//wpa_supplicant... This is because of the PREFIX and usrmove hacks in the PKGBUILD. Use the original LIBDIR and BINDIR options instead. See attached PKGBUILD.patch.

I also propose some config changes (config.patch):

- Enable CONFIG_EAP_FAST since we have OpenSSL >= 1.0. (enabled in Fedora since 2010-12-08)

- Disable CONFIG_HT_OVERRIDES. This is probably a development and debug option. We don't have CONFIG_VHT_OVERRIDES either.

- Enable CONFIG_IEEE80211W (management frame protection). Probably an useful feature.

- Enable CONFIG_IEEE80211N and CONFIG_IEEE80211AC to support the newer standards in AP mode. (CONFIG_IEEE80211N already requested in  FS#31464  and enabled in Fedora since 2013-05-15)

- Enable CONFIG_TDLS (Tunneled Direct Link Setup). This allows wireless clients to directly communicate with each other instead of relaying everything through the AP.

Fedora's config for reference:
This task depends upon
